Husband of Boston school leader dies

Matthew Johnson, the husband of Boston School Superintendent Carol R. Johnson, died Monday following a lengthy illness.

“Our hearts go out to the super­intendent and her family during this extraordinarily difficult time,” Mayor Thomas M. Menino and School Committee chairman Michael O’Neill wrote in a letter to school staff. “We all know how lucky we are to have a leader who considers the people who make up our schools as part of her family. This morning, we know our entire community is grieving alongside her.”
